    California cannot afford to do anything. They are broke because of excessive taxes and spending.

    Gosh, Bill. I read through all of the comments.

    I had NO idea that people in the northern states held that much contempt for those of us living below the Mason-Dixon line.

    That was kind of hurtful to read.

    Evidently this fellow either doesn't know history or he can't read a map. Maybe both.


    BTW, this fellow doesn't know much about California, either.

    There are many factors as to why one state receives more than another. This from a related article.

    This post and the article it was taken from just prove the old proverb;

    Numbers don't lie, but liars use numbers

    Scarlett, it's liberals that have the contempt.

    >Consider that the Beehive State is a desert state with its share of high-tech firms, sagebrush, and fewer than 3 million residents. So is New Mexico. Yet Utah ranks last in the ranking of federal largess, while New Mexico is perennially near the top.

    Arizona has about 10 times more Indian People than Utah. This, alone, might greatly effect the federal payment balance.

    Or is your point that the US could solve our budget problem if we all joined the LDS?
